1
I love that the LORD should hear my voice and my supplications.
2
Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him all my days.
3
The cords of death compassed me, and the straits of the nether-world got hold upon me;
I found trouble and sorrow.
4
But I called upon the name of the LORD: "I beseech thee, O LORD, deliver my soul."
5
Gracious is the LORD, and righteous;
yea, our God is compassionate.
6
The LORD preserveth the simple;
I was brought low, and He saved me.
7
Return, O my soul, unto Thy rest;
for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
8
For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.
9
I shall walk before the LORD in the lands of the living.
10
I trusted even when I spoke: "I am greatly afflicted."
11
I said in my haste: "All men are liars."
12
How can I repay unto the LORD all His bountiful dealings toward me?
13
I will lift up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
14
My vows will I pay unto the LORD, yea, in the presence of all His people.
15
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.
16
I beseech Thee, O LORD, for I am Thy servant;
I am Thy servant, the son of Thy handmaid;
Thou hast loosed my bands.
17
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
18
I will pay my vows unto the LORD, yea, in the presence of all His people;
19
In the courts of the LORD"S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.
Hallelujah.
